The only way to catch the beats is through practice. Focus on mastering one song first before moving on to the next songs.
Practice when to press or tap the drum’s surface, and when to press or tap with both fingers. Shifting from one fingers to two fingers can get tricky, so try to master this.
The slowest song you can choose is Sakura. That’s why it’s the first song in the selection list. Beginners should start with this song.
Faster songs are the Kite Song and Blue Eye Doll. Expect each song to have different beat pattern complexity. While a song may be slow, beat patterns may be harder.
Likewise, a faster song may have a simple beat pattern. Try drumming to all 6 songs for the full game experience.
When you hit combo beats several times consecutively without breaks, the gray circles lights on fire. It only stops if you miss a beat.
Challenge yourself to get a higher score each time you play a track. This is an fun and addictive drum practice game that kids and adults will love.
